The gravity defying multiplayer shooter from the mind of Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski will no longer be exclusive to the PC as Boss Key Productions has confirmed that Lawbreakers will be coming to PS4 at the same time as the PC launch.
LawBreakers is set in a futuristic world where the laws of gravity has been broken and a civil war between two factions ‘The Law’ and ‘The Breakers’ has escalated. Of course, this means that each map has an effect on gravity that will have players floating, flying and flung across the world.
“With LawBreakers, we wanted to honor the skill-based FPS games of yesteryear, all while embracing the new and pushing the genre in our own unique way,” said Bleszinski. “We found that messing with gravity, and having it mess with the player, adds a dynamic vertical element that will challenge players of all skill levels to go above their limits. Add in a variety of character role play-styles that go beyond the basic ‘tank, sniper and medic,’ a price point that we feel is fair to the player and the fact that it’s just damn fun to play – we’re confident LawBreakers will be one of the best valued and most challenging FPS games on PC or console.”
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Cliff and his team to bring such a unique and challenging combat experience to PS4,” said Owen Mahoney, President and CEO of Nexon. “This marks a major milestone for Nexon as we launch onto a home videogame console for the first time in the company’s history.”
LawBreakers will be taking on a model similar to Blizzard’s Overwatch, with the game being a single purchase at $29.99 USD and all future updates being free. This will allow no “pay-to-win” mechanics in the game and offer robust cosmetics via the game’s Stash-box system.
No release date has been given at this time, but we can expect to hear more about LawBreakers at E3 next month.
